Story behind your screen name?


Recommended Posts

The better people to ask would be my parents but they are gone.   I was named after my maternal and paternal grandfathers.  I have never quite understood the rationale behind a nom de web, particularly on a website such as IFI.  I can see it in certain other places as a security measure but here it seems to be overkill.  This does not seem to be a place where there is much risk or much to hide.

Frazer is my last name, my touchmark is a Z due to the spelling of it which differs from the common spelling which generally involves an "I" and/or an "S".

My first name is Brady. Yes, like Tom Brady. Fun fact my middle name is indeed Thomas...

Nor did I, when I joined IFI.  The year that I joined, 2013, was one of the worst in my life, a mid-life crisis on steroids.  Anachronist58 is a reflection of rising from severe cognitive impairment, and despair.  Thus, for me, the nom de web represents my year of birth, and how I began relating to the world around me.  I usually sign isolated posts with my actual name:

I've been going by Frosty since pre-school and the Lucky addition is the result of surviving the birch tree. 

It's funny, Saturday a rather large group of folks moved into the 3 spaces next to us in the RV park, one class A, one class C (motor homes) and a couple commuter cars. Big family, lots of cooking and singing to a boom box in Tagalog. Didn't understand a word and they quieted down reasonably early.  Good neighbors.

Tagalog doesn't come up that often for me.  Pretty cool.

I have 2 nom de web  I use.  The one here is because of a computer repair biz that never went anywhere.  I just used that old email to set up forum id's.  been that way for several years now.

My other is based on one of my favorite characters from my favorite authors.  I use that one for all the more personal stuff.

I always kind of likened the made up name since CB handles were a thing.

Business in front and party in the back is the formula for the mullet. I don’t have any pics of me doing anything smithing related and I refuse to take selfies. I felt that you can see the absence of hair on the sides and the exaggerated length in the back from that vantage. Hope that helps. 

Let me know if this helps explain the screen name? 20BD138F-789B-4E87-9FCA-43855AEEAE9A.jpeg.50ff7c696d5bb5939add396c51f92d04.jpeg

I believe that explains it nicely. Not that we'll remember the story but that's okay as long as we know there is one we're good.

The story of the Lucky part of my login is in the prayers section cir. September 2009.

I've been called Pnut for about 35 yrs. My long time friends have even shortened it to just calling me Nut.  I had a skateboard that was issued by the pro skater Ned "peanut" Brown and someone didn't know my name while we were skating so yelled, "Hey Peanut Brown!", and it stuck.

Aha!  I've been wondering for some time whether your screen name was "peanut" or whether the P was silent and it was "nut" or "noot" (as in Scandanavian names Knute).  Now I know.  Thx.
